Granola Recipe

 

Granola: Preheat your oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Butter a large baking sheet, or spray with a non stick vegetable spray.

In a large bowl combine the rolled oats, nuts, seeds, ground cinnamon, and salt. 

In another bowl, stir together the apple sauce, butter (or oil), honey, brown rice syrup, and brown sugar. Pour this mixture over the dry ingredients and toss together, making sure all the dry ingredients are coated with the wet ingredients. Spread in an even layer on your baking sheet and bake for about 40 minutes or until golden brown, stirring occasionally so the mixture browns evenly. (The browner the granola gets (without burning) the crunchier the granola will be.) Remove from oven and place on a wire rack to cool. The granola may still be sticky when it is removed from the oven but it will become crisp and dry as it cools. Stir in dried fruits, if using. Store in an airtight container or plastic bag in the refrigerator. It will keep for several weeks.

Serve plain or with milk and fresh fruit.

Makes about 5 cups (1.2 liters).
